I found a perfect pattern for all of you who have lots of little bits of fabric, but not exactly enough to make the something or other that you have been wanting to use your fabric on. This pattern is ideal for a little bit of this with a little bit of matching that.

If I am not making any sense, let me put it to you this way. Samples that compliment samples and a great way to get some of that favorite fabric to good use. This pattern is a great blend of opposites, or compliments. As you can see by my use of this. I had two great pieces of fabric of identical patterns but of different colors. So I could stop trying to find something small for both of them and just combine them. The lining is way too busy for my tastes, but the colors were gorgeous and I figured my wallet, phone, and accessories were going to blend it all in!! But you get the idea. This is not the pocket (in the lining) that came with the pattern. The bordered embroidery was so beautiful I just ran with it! Even the little side pocket gold lining piece is perfect for it! All from Fabmo samples.

If you are used to making purses, this is a simple one. Although, when it came to sewing all the layers of the strap over the pockets and pouch it was really thick. Two needles later I got this done. But my machine is not good with heavy duty sewing. If yours is, this will be a breeze.
